The FLORA exhibition is fast approaching and I have been busy making the usual preparations. The 2018 calendars have been designed and a fresh batch of cards are looking fabulous in their new card stand.
My bespoke frames have just arrived and have a very different look this year, I think they complement the artwork perfectly (as well as the surroundings!)
Time has flown, we are already over half way through the year and I cannot believe it has been six months since my last blog.
I had rather a slow return to painting after the ‘Blooming Wonderful‘ exhibition last November, experiencing ‘artist’s block’ with a collection of paintings that I had hoped to exhibit with the Royal Horticultural Society in 2018.
After a lot of deliberation I eventually decided to allow myself more creative freedom – to just paint for the love of it! Since making this decision there has been no stopping me, I have created a whole new collection of botanical paintings which I am delighted to say will be exhibited at:
Hector’s House, Woodland Discovery Centre
Saturday 18th and Sunday 19th November 2017
It was a pleasure to exhibit six paintings from the ‘Blooming Wonderful
‘ collection recently at the Sheffield Chamber of Commerce Summer Barbecue – a good contrast to my solitary existence in the studio.
Today’s walk around Bradfield was the perfect post-exhibition tonic. A chance to stretch my legs and reflect upon a fabulous weekend at Hector’s House. Thank you to all who visited and apologies to anyone who didn’t get a chance to chat to me, there seemed to be an endless stream of visitors!
Delighted to have sold 10 original paintings, many cards & calendars and several print orders too. If you are interested in purchasing anything please email me, all the Blooming Wonderful paintings can now be seen on the website gallery page.
Time for me to think about my next project!
‘Great to be involved in this project to protect the wildflower habitats of Ecclesall Woods.
Look out for the posters on your woodland walk.’
Counting the Days
Three weeks until the ‘Blooming Wonderful’ exhibition in November and the planning is all coming together.
The 2017 calendar has arrived! Paintings from the new collection accompany each month with a lovely seasonal feel, here is what next October will look like:
Louise exhibited a selection of paintings from her ‘Blooming Wonderful’ collection at the recent Sheffield Chamber of Commerce and Industry President’s Dinner held in the Sheffield Cathedral. Her painting Tulip ‘Queen of the Night’ had been donated for auction and raised £2000 for the chosen charity, St Luke’s Hospice.
To keep up with the times and give my website a more mobile and tablet friendly layout I have completely refurbished it using WordPress. I hope you like the new look, I have gone for a minimalist approach to allow the artwork to speak for itself.
